Well it lags, but I got both video and audio with lagging.

I think he keeps his mouth sealed and said he's got no plan and donno if he'd race in Sonoma Cup... Typical Kimi!

Raikkonen on Sonoma: "It would be nice to go and do it, but I don't know if it's going to happen or not. We'll see what happens this week."

Kimi Raikkonen on Sonoma: "It would be nice to go and do it. We'll see what happens. Has to go back and "do some rally stuff" first #nascar

Asked if he felt more comfortable in a Sprint Cup car on a road course, Kimi Raikkonen said he ran only about 20 laps at VIR. #nascar

Raikkonen non-committal on Cup race, but preference for road course. "Will it happen or not? I don't know." #NASCAR
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

They asked a few questions about his truck race last week, the cup test he did this week. He said it was fun driving last week hopefully 2nd time will be better. About the test he said he ran about 6 laps and went wide into the grass and unfortunately there was a hole there so damaged the car, then it started to rain so that was about it...

This is much more in line with Kimi last week's 14 minute press conference must have been some kind of record. :cool:

The organizer only allowed 4 questions I think, maybe that's all Kimi promised to do.

Kimi Raikkonen NASCAR's Venture Turns To Nationwide Series At Charlotte

by Jeff Gluck

Former Formula One champion Kimi Raikkonen said he will indeed race in Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway – and left the door open for a Sprint Cup start at Sonoma next month.

Raikkonen, the "Ice Man" whose cool demeanor matches his nickname, said he's still undecided on his NASCAR future after making one Truck Series start last week and the impending Nationwide start for NEMCO Motorsports on Saturday.

Wearing a backwards Red Bull hat, a black Perky Jerky T-shirt and shorts, Raikkonen acknowledged he's thinking about running a road-course race in the Cup Series – but hasn't decided for sure.

"It would be nice to go and do (Sonoma), but I don't know if it's going to happen or not," he said. "We'll see what happens this weekend. I have to go back and do my Rally (car) stuff and we'll see."

Raikkonen said he's yet to drive a Nationwide car – today is the first time – but feels somewhat confident because "at least I know the circuit and how the weekend goes."

In talking with other drivers, he said, he was told there was "not an awful difference" between Trucks and Nationwide cars.

He does have 20 laps of experience in a Cup car – but not on an oval.

Raikkonen said his test last week – driving a Robby Gordon Motorsports car at the Virginia International Raceway road course – wasn't all that helpful. Before he got a chance to run many laps, he took one turn too wide and tried to run through the grass.

"I went out and just ran a bit wide and I decided to go in the grass, but unfortunately there was a big hole in the grass and it destroyed the front a bit," he said.

Still, that wasn't enough to dissuade him from driving in Nationwide this weekend after reports said he was unsure about it earlier in the week.

"The Nationwide, we are here, so what's the most easiest thing to get more experience?" he said. "It was the easiest thing for me to do."
